While the implant mimics the root of the tooth, the replacement structure looks and feels just like a natural tooth, providing patients with a permanent solution that replicates the fit and feel of natural teeth.
Full Arch Implants

Missing teeth can lead to serious dental problems and can significantly inhibit your ability to eat and speak. Full arch restoration implants are most often placed with dentures or bridges, providing patients with a natural and functional restored smile that offers numerous advantages over traditional removable dentures.
